453Most hppa machines have an onboard ethernet card. Old ones use the lasi driver
454which is compiled in the kernel. Newer ones need the tulip driver which is
455compiled as a module. To use the latter, you need to load its driver.
456</p>
457
458<p>
459In the next example, we try to load the <c>tulip</c> module (support for
460certain kinds of network interfaces):
461</p>
462
463<pre caption="Loading kernel modules">
464# <i>modprobe tulip</i>

474<p>
475If you plan on giving other people access to your installation
476environment or you want to chat using <c>irssi</c> without root privileges (for
477security reasons), you need to create the necessary user accounts and change
478the root password.
479</p>
480
481<p>
482To change the root password, use the <c>passwd</c> utility:
483</p>
484
485<pre caption="Changing the root password">
486# <i>passwd</i>
487New password: <comment>(Enter your new password)</comment>
488Re-enter password: <comment>(Re-enter your password)</comment>
489</pre>
490
491<p>
492To create a user account, we first enter their credentials, followed by
493its password. We use <c>useradd</c> and <c>passwd</c> for these tasks.
494In the next example, we create a user called &quot;john&quot;.
495</p>
496
497<pre caption="Creating a user account">
498# <i>useradd -m -G users john</i>
499# <i>passwd john</i>
500New password: <comment>(Enter john's password)</comment>
501Re-enter password: <comment>(Re-enter john's password)</comment>
502</pre>
503
504<p>
505You can change your user id from root to the newly created user by using
506<c>su</c>:
507</p>
508
509<pre caption="Changing user id">
510# <i>su - john</i>

516<title>Optional: Viewing Documentation while Installing</title>

519<p>
520If you want to view the Gentoo Handbook (either from-CD or online) during the
521installation, make sure you have created a user account (see <uri
522link="#useraccounts">Optional: User Accounts</uri>). Then press <c>Alt-F2</c> to
523go to a new terminal and log in.
524</p>
525
526<p>
527If you want to view the documentation on the CD you can immediately run
528<c>links</c> to read it:
529</p>
530
531<pre caption="Viewing the on-CD documentation">
532# <i>links /mnt/cdrom/docs/handbook/html/index.html</i>
533</pre>
534
535<p>
536However, it is preferred that you use the online Gentoo Handbook as it will be
537more recent than the one provided on the CD. You can view it using <c>links</c>
538as well, but only after having completed the <e>Configuring your Network</e>
539chapter (otherwise you won't be able to go on the Internet to view the
540document):
541</p>
542
543<pre caption="Viewing the Online Documentation">
544# <i>links http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/<keyval id="online-book"/></i>
545</pre>
546
547<p>
548You can go back to your original terminal by pressing <c>Alt-F1</c>.

554<title>Optional: Starting the SSH Daemon</title>
555<body>
556
557<p>
558If you want to allow other users to access your computer during the
559Gentoo installation (perhaps because those users are going to help you
560install Gentoo, or even do it for you), you need to create a user
561account for them and perhaps even provide them with your root password
562(<e>only</e> do that <e>if</e> you <b>fully trust</b> that user).
563</p>
564
565<p>
566To fire up the SSH daemon, execute the following command:
567</p>
568
569<pre caption="Starting the SSH daemon">
570# <i>/etc/init.d/sshd start</i>
571</pre>
572
573<p>
574To be able to use sshd, you first need to set up your networking. Continue with
575the chapter on <uri link="?part=1&amp;chap=3">Configuring your Network</uri>.
